A fairy called Holger has granted most of my wishes yesterday, and
now my rootfs has been freed from the shackles of Busybox :-)

The only common utility still missing is "df". I don't know which
package this is coming from. It seems that it ought to be coreutils,
but for some reason, I don't see it there.

Thanks a lot, Holger !
